All,

Another new orchid, and I am super excited about this one! I'd been looking for it everywhere, and finally ran it to it at my local nursery.

Since I have no experience with these dendrobiums, I was hoping you all could shed some light.

I know it needs a winter rest, and I know it needs bright light and daily watering when in growth.

What I am wondering is if you can tell by the pics where it is in its cycle? It has green leaves, as you can see. Should I be expecting these to fall off (it's April) and then bloom? Or, should the leaves stick around until fall/winter, and then I should expect blooms in a year?

Any advice or thoughts appreciated.

It is in active growth - after all, it's spring. I would expect it to wait until next spring to bloom. I don't grow this one (too big for the greenhouse, too cold outside in the winter where I live) but it should be happy in Florida. It's possible that if it is warm and wet enough that these could keep leaves in winter, but I'd certainly group it with those that want a dry (or at least drier) winter rest. (I give some water to that group of Dens at my house, but it's a lot drier in southern California than in Florida)

Man me too! But I won't lie, I really don't have much of a clue what I'm suppose to be doing for her yet! She has he leaves too already and some new growths about the exact same spot yours is at actually!!! I don't even know if mine should have already bloomed yet or next year or when or what but! Feel free to shoot me messages whenever with even just updates on yours! I would really enjoy and appreciate it!

Lordy, these things can grow. I love mine but I need to clean it up and divide it this year just to keep it manageable... Completely agree with Roberta in that these are new growths and wonít be blooming till next spring, most likely. Mine usually blooms sometime between February and early April depending on the winter we had (mine stays outdoors year round). I will start losing some leaves after the canes mature in the mid-late fall but if I have a mild winter some leaves will stay on. I donít water at all once my temps start to drop (usually November-ish) and donít restart until the buds are formed and I see new growths. I have high humidity though

Sara Jean, I love the hear that that grow! Your approach sounds like my general plan. How much do you water during growth, though? I hear conflicting things from everyday, to twice a day, to once a week.

I also hear conflicting advice on light. From absolutely no direct sun to morning and evening sun.

What say you, Emma? What's your plan?

So I had found a lot of conflicting ideas too Kilmiquix!one reason I am so happy to find someone in the same boat as me! Watering terms, my plan is no water in winter, ummm when someone on OB explained t to me, (you probably could find the board. I got some good help and advice!) but they said that they stick theirs as far away from their heater in winter and leave it alone. "If they are feeling generous" I might give it one or two VERY light sprays. Once leaves are on the plant you can safely at lest water lightly and then full on watering after blooming if I remember correctly. Which is kinda off for us! Not helpful!

I also have found that during their dormant season you want those suckers in as much light as possible? I can't tell you why...maybe to dry stuff out? Maybe to imitate natural growing patterns? Oh and less humidity and Then during growing time they go in partial to maybe low light? I'm really trying to remember!

AOS culture sheet is a little helpful. Search boards done by me and one of my most recent is about debdrobiums! This one and parishii in specific!

Important to look at nature... These grow in a monsoonal area that has lots of rain - and clouds - in summer. In winter, little or no rain (but some morning dew... it's still humid, and it gets chilly.), no clouds means more sun (and more cooling at night, so a bigger day-night temperature differential) . That's what you're trying to mimic. So "Dry" doesn't mean 15% humidity in a heated house... A bit of spritzing is helpful and needed. The best light that you can give it. Some cooling near a window.
